hen I saw Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas" -which just so happens to be one of my all-time favorite films- I had an urge to see his other movies.I'll agree with pretty much everyone and say that "Casino" is no "Goodfellas".But who cares? This is a fascinating and powerfully dramatic film with great performances by Robert De Niro and the unforgettably talented Joe Pesci who won the Oscar for best supporting actor in "Goodfellas"

Okay to watch, would never recommend. More 'narration' than dialogue, which appears to be roughly 20 pages for a two hour movie. And not one single character that was worth giving a cr** about.

"Casino" is adapted from a true story about the mob in Las Vegas. The movie starts out with a very prophetic statement by Robert De Niro as the narrator. He says "Las Vegas has become to look like Disneyland". Martin Scorsese gives us a look at the life of Sam "Ace" Rothstein played by De Niro. He will rise from a bookie to the manager of the Casino The Tangiers. He will marry Ginger McKenna played by Sharon Stone. They will have one of the rockiest marriages ever to be put on film. The movie is a great look at the inside of a casino operation. It shows the skimming of money and how casino's handle those who try an cheat at the gaming tables. It is a fascinating study of how a casino works. Few movies have such a wonderful cast and a great script to work with. The back drop of Las Vegas just makes it all the more fascinating.

This 3-hour long gangster film about "Las Vegas of the old" is punctuated with violence and killing. With Scorsese at the helm you can't go wrong. The cast headed by de Niro is top-notch. Go for it if this is the kind of film you want to watch.

Not worth wasting 3 hours watching this not-so-surprising story about low life people obsessed with money, nothing but bloody money.

One of the greatest gangster movies ever. Goodfellas, Godfather 1 & 2 and The Departed are the only ones in my opinion which are superior. Outstanding performances by DeNiro, Pesci and Stone.

Casino is maybe not as memorable as Goodfellas but great nonetheless. This movie is pretty much like Goodfellas but with more money and power. Money and power the Mafia had over Las Vegas in the 1970s. I thought Sharon Stone was a bad actress but in this movie she is actually quite good. She even got an Oscar nomination for her role. There are a lot of great scenes and stellar acting by Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci and the supporting actors. The violence and coarse language may offend some and believe me there is a lot of it. The movie looks beautiful too being set in Las Vegas with all the bright colours and lights. The soundtrack is great too. Definitely recommend this movie.

Nice, brings you back to Vegas in the 70's. Vintage Joe Pesci shines.
